Just received a call from Dish letting me know my 811 is available for delivery. I paid $99 bucks for it and will be installed on May 27th. I honestly could not say no for the price tag. Yes I personally do not have any experience with the 811, but i figured why not get it,, especially for that price. I know it has bugs, but hopefully they will be worked out over time. If not I'll use my 6000. Did I make a bad decision??

I think it was a great decision. I had to pay $149 for mine and I know other existing customers paid even more. Regardless of their decision to prematurely launch the product, I fully expect the issues with the 811 to be satisfactorily resolved in the future. Whether the fixes come in a reasonable time frame or not is largely personal opinion.

This is assuming your appointment goes as planned...

I got three for $149. But I did have to send two of them back because they didn't work. I guess the third time's the charm. :D Good luck to you Enforcer, I sure hope your first one works as well as my third.

How do you know if you get one of the new 811s or one of the old 811s with bugs. I heard they stopped making them for a while and just recently rolled on them again. My instal is for saturday and i don't want one of the old ones.

I have had my 811 since March 1st, I got it with Dish's HD in a Box promo for current customers, well first of all they called and canceled on me four hours before the install and said it would be at least thirty days, then I e-mailed ceo@Dishnetwork and one week later I got it installed. Thats a heads up to all of you that have ordered one, you may have to argue with a few people to get it! Anyways, I agree that the 811 will be fixed, its just the question of when. For me, I like the 811, but the bugs are lets say irritating! But I will be patient, this receiver has a great potential.

Thanks,
Tony

How does one buy an 811 for $99 when it says that they cost $399.99 on Dish's website?

Thanx in advance,
Steve...

Just call Dish and tell them you want to order a an 811, but ask them how much it costs. They will look up your account and quote you your price. If it is more that you want to pay, just tell them no thanks, but ask them why others are getting the 811 for $99.

The $99 Question...

...is it still Dish property or do you own it? It was referred to me as an activation fee by the CSR so that sounds like lease to me.
